Brass, Reeds, and Percussion: March 14, 2020

In Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and France, there is a musical formation called a fanfare orchestra. It is composed of brass instruments, just as a true brass band would be, plus percussion, but the only woodwinds are saxophones. In these countries, music publishers and their composers will typically have versions of a composition arranged for symphonic wind band, brass band, and fanfare orchestra. Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion will feature “2001 A Fanfare Odyssey” by Derek Bourgeois.
